Dear Tin Can Luv, (and everyone we met last year at 2004 rally)

I know of two little girls who ask about you guys...

Our AS is at the mothership at JC getting some construction issues ironed out. Also, they are still looking for the brake problem outlined in another thread...The brakes work 99% of the time...with the other 1% causing me mucho stress.

We have not been posting much -- we were hit head-on with some good and bad things last year after the rally. Chandra (the oldest) tried out for one of the top area soccer teams, and made it. That turned out to be a major commitment similar to training for the Olympics in gymnastics (I jest, somewhat). She has become quite a player, playing center-midfield despite her size -- she makes up for it with quickness, and guile. She draws a lot of fouls because she can blow by her opponents and they clip her when she beats them...

The younger one (Kira) has been in kindergarden. She has grown a lot, and misses her friends from the Rally...and goes nuts whenever we see a flamingo anything...

We have a tournement and 2005-2006 tryouts the week of the Rally, so we will regretfully not make it this year. They grow up fast...

Sara's mom has required a lot of care, so we got spread too thin for camping after last August. Things are better, so we hope to be less incognito this spring...

They rally was a highlight trip for us last year -- I am glad we went, and encourage anyone who has not gone to go -- it is worth it!

-Rob and Sara and CJ and KJ...

Nice words Rob. Our best to your family and Sara's mom.

To the other folks out there, this is our third rally and yes for a lot of us it will be our third year of attendance. Please be aware that obviously if you are new with your Airstream or just haven't been to a rally before, please consider attending. While the chatter sounds like its old home week, you won't be ignored by those of us who have been here before. Last year brought about a big influx of new attendees and while the dates aren't condusive to some of the folks who have been there in the past, there will be plenty of room and opportunity for others to take their place.

The big thing to remember is to not wait till the last minute to make your reservations. The park will honor requests from others outside our group, and we so much want you to be able to have an Airstream Forums buddy on each side of your site. So maybe take the time this weekend to fill out the reservation form and get your site assigned. As Hohne noted above it was a highlight trip of his last year and hopefully it will be for you.

For those of you reading these posts from the bottom, check out post #39 on page 2 of this thread for the information and links to the reservation forms and pictures.

If you have sent in a reservation and haven't posted that fact, let me know. I'll add you to the maybe list. Once you get your site I'll add you to the final numbers.

Regards,

Jack

I wholeheartedly agree. This is not a stale pomp and circumstance type rally. It's really, really fun.

I recall the first year, I had come across this site and Jack suggested that we do a rally. This was back in January of 2003. So the plan was for June and it came faster than one could ever think possible. So the Friday of the rally, we left after work. We got there after dark and if you are going for the first time, or are new to RVing, definitely try to plan to get there before dark.

So anyway, we get to the gate or the park and it's really a wooded dark road...I recall Brandi saying, wow this is really cool, but the road into the park is long...she then said, where again did you meet these people....the Internet, I said and we both looked at each other and got a bit nervous.

Well, we got setup with the help of a few people and I have to say, we've met some great people whom I consider friends along the way, which I never thought would have happened.

There are only a few things that would stop us from being able to attend, one is our wedding, otherwise we'd be there again in a heartbeat to see the new faces and see our dear friends again.

As a tear falls down my cheek....

WHat wonderful words. I'm so VERY sad that we won't be able to see some of you this year. While Airstreaming, you quickly meet an extended family. Those of you who can not attend, you will be missed.

I did just recieve confirmation.... the excitement of getting the official document in the mail.

I am at P48

I'll be there come hell or high water. It's the weekend before my 30th birthday. My parents asked about what I would want to do for my 30th, and I explained I would be with you all.... My mom wants to come up and throw my party at Moraine View.... I can't think of a better group of people to be with, if you all find that it would be alright for them to do so.

Cant' wait!!!!

Ron

Oh, I can't WAIT to meet your Mom.
We Moms stick together; we have our own network.

Do I have some stories for her!

Maybe I'll tell her what you did on Pike's Peak last summer.
That may not work, because you could incriminate ME, I guess.

Seriously, I am glad you got a campsite and are going to be there.

Well we picked up another attendee who let me know via private email. I'll count them in the count but they would rather stay out of the public post at this point.

Regards,

Jack

And lots of help is there. If you get there in the dark, we will help you get backed into your site. If you can't seem to get your trailer door closed easily, we will help you back off that stabilizer, right Twink?

There will be a school of hard knocks where those of us with a few years under our belts will pass on some of the lessons we learned.....the hard way.

And likewise to Eric's last comment, we made a lot of new friends and got to put faces with the forum handles. Who would have guessed this?

I remember buying our first Airstream and doing my research on the Internet prior to this forum coming to be. I told Patty one evening after finishing a session on our PC, "You know, we just aren't buying another trailer....this Airstream thing is much bigger than that". I don't believe at the time she knew what I meant.

Regards,

Jack

How curious! Is this a mystery we can solve? Do we get a hint?

Cool Cool Cool I love mysteries :-)
